Information about this mod___________________________________________________________________
This mod changes the federation GUI,
to add a nicer look and a more practical GUI adjustment to your game.
Although I did recreate the command buttons, this mod does not influence your other GUIs,
if you don't want to.

This version 1.1 fixes several bugs of the previous version,
where you could not click on the ship icon.
In addition the needed files to install this GUI for the cardassians,
klingons and romulans are now included.
Version 1.0 is not needed to install 1.1.
As this mod replaces everything included in 1.0, you do not have to uninstall 1.0 first.



Installation instructions____[2 Steps]_______________________________________________________
_______________________________v_______v_______v_______v_______v_______v_______v_______v_____

1. Copy the files (Hit Replace all, when prompted.)

|.
|WARNING!
|This step requires replacing files. Create copies of the original files,
|to make sure that you can uninstall this mod.



gui_federation.spr

gui_cardassian.spr
gui_klingon.spr
gui_romulan.spr

|.
|Notice:
|The icons of this GUI are designed for the federation and not for other races,
|therefore you might want to install this GUI for the federation only.
|If so, ignore the files for the other races.


in your Armada 2 directory to:
"...ActivisionStar Trek Armada IISprites"


gui_fed.cfg

gui_rom.cfg
gui_kli.cfg
gui_cardassian.cfg

|Notice:
|If your monitor has a 4:3 resolution, ignore the other files in the "misc" folder.
|If your monitor has a 5:4 resolution,
| use the file "5x4 gui_fed.cfg" BUT rename it to "gui_fed.cfg"
|If your monitor has a 16:10 resolution,
| use the file "16x10 gui_fed.cfg" BUT rename it to "gui_fed.cfg"
|Do the same with the files for the other races.

TIP: Install the command-buttons for all Races_______________________________________________
If you prefer these blue command buttons over those silver stock buttons, do the following:


- Open "gui_federation.spr" (Located in this Mod, in the folder "Sprites")
- Search this line: "//RACE SPECIFIC COMMAND BUTTONS -----"
and copy ALL lines below.

- Choose the directory:
"...ActivisionStar Trek Armada IISprites"

- Open one after another the following files, and add the copied lines at the end of them:
gui_borg.spr
gui_cardassian.spr
gui_klingon
gui_romulan
gui_species8472.spr

- Save the file and close it - done.



For Modders__________________________________________________________
I have placed empty buildbuttons, active- and passive-special-weapon-buttons
and command buttons in the main mod directory.
Which offers every Modder the opportunity to create new buttons that fit to this GUI.
Of course, you are allowed to publish those buttons, done by you.

Notice 1: The *.bmp files ending with an "a" are meant as an AlphaMap for the *.tga file,
and will allow you to create transparent buttons.

Notice 2: To make transparent buildbuttons possible, you have to add the definition
"@tmaterial=interface" to your "gui_global.spr" file.

"fwvoyint.tga", "fwseldest.tga" and " fwfedfreeze.tga" are examples.
